Christian relationship Guru and author Derrick Jaxn has released a video across all his social media platforms, confessing that he cheated on his wife of 4 years.
Jaxn, who has millions of followers and made millions promoting his message of “Black men don’t cheat” and “healing and healthy relationships God’s way” type of advice that emphasizes faithfulness and black men treating their wives like queens, confessed his wayward ways after the other woman, Candice De Medeiros outed him on Tasha K’s YouTube channel, providing receipts of text messages and videos of the sordid affair.
She revealed that Jaxn has been sending her inappropriate texts and videos for years, such as asking her what kind of underwear she was wearing back in 2016, but that they first slept together in July of 2020, on his birthday while his wife and kids were away visiting family in Colorado.
Telling her he and his wife were in the processing of separating, he flew her to Miami and they had a raucously adulterous weekend. Then he flew her to his house, inviting all her friends and his friends, including his best friend, and they spent the weekend there, hanging out in the pool, drinking, with she (Medeiros) and Jaxn having sex multiple times in his marital bed. During this time he told her that he’s cheated on his wife before, and didn’t love her [his wife], and was insisting he was going to leave her.
After Tasha K went public with this news, he responded publicly.
I would say it started around August or September of last year. But a lot has been said already about what was the cause. And some of it is true, some of it is completely false. But the truth is, and I’m saying it here now, is that Derek Jackson was involved with other women outside the marriage.
And by involved, I want to be clear: I’m not just talking about casually kicking it maybe at lunch or something like that. I’m talking about as serious as sex, sexual flirtation and that kind of thing…
…I’m saying this publicly, not because I’m married to you guys. First and foremost, I’m accountable to God, and then I have to be accountable to my wife in which we’ve already had this conversation
…That’s not in line with the vows I took, and definitely not in line with the biblical standard of what it means to be faithful, which is the standard I’m going by now.
During a follow up Q&A his wife says she has forgiven him, and that they are in counseling. Despite being revealed as a cheater who has demonstrated some high-level sociopathy when it comes to his committing of adultery while being open about it with his circle of friends, he says he has no intentions of ceasing his ministry of promoting faithfulness and treating one’s spouse as the goddess they are, and will continue to promote his book Heal Together.
I get it. To some of you, all this may have come as a huge shock, a huge disappointment. I let a lot of you down. If you’ve had a perspective shift on who Derrick is, hopefully, it’s away from anything remotely close to perfection, and it’s simply that I am a human. And that does not justify anything that I did, but I don’t want anybody out there putting me on a pedestal.
If you did, then I hate that you did that. Maybe I gave you cause. I apologize if I did. For those who are saying, ‘Derrick, I don’t ever want to listen to you again,’ it’s understandable. I appreciate you while I had your support.
